Volvo Car Malaysia launched the locally-assembled Volvo S90 T8 Twin Engine, the flagship saloon in their range, at the International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference (IGEM) at KLCC.

The Volvo S90 T8 Twin Engine is produced in Shah Alam and will be exported around the region. It is the second PHEV that Volvo assembles in Malaysia, the first being the XC90 T8 Twin Engine.

The Volvo S90 T8 Twin Engine is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV), combining a four-cylinder, 2.0-litre supercharged and turbocharged petrol engine with a 10.4kWh Lithium-ion battery to produce a maximum output of 407bhp and 640Nm of torque.

The saloon is all-wheel drive: the combustion engine powers the front wheels while an electric motor drives the rear axle.

Standard equipment include Park Assist with Park Assist Pilot, 360º camera, Blindspot system with cross traffic alert, lane keeping assist, two stage integrated booster seats and comfort seats upholstered in Nappa Leather and the signature handmade Orrefors Crystal gear lever.

The top-of-the-range Inscription Plus also comes with a 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins sound system and air suspension with electronically controlled dampeners.
